Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my 39th Birthday. Usually I try not tell anyone about my Birthday. But because I was blessed enough to spend today with both Kate and Carson (thank you school closing!) I shamelessly told Kate and Carson about every 10 minutes that it was my Birthday. I knew they would celebrate me in their own special way. :) They sang me Happy Birthday complete with cha cha chas this morning. That was followed by a game of monopoly and the highlight of my day. Finally getting out of the house after 4 days! It was awesome. We got up and down the driveway with no problem. Our birthday destination? Kroger. Ha! We were getting a little bare on food. So many wishes came from friends and family today through calls, texts, and facebook. I am growing to like face book as I heard from people from all stages of my life. So much fun. I really felt a lot of love today. You can be sure I was hugged and kissed a lot by my 2 babies today. And the running joke all day was, "Go Kate it's your birthday! No it's not.... it's Mommy's!"

This is what 39 looks like for me.

Oh I tried so hard for  a good Birthday picture. But the kids were so nuts this morning. Carson only made it in this shot which had to be seriously cropped due to his ahem! nakedness.

Making my Birthday cake from scratch. They really did do most of the work. They were so excited.

See what I mean. Even Kate had a hard time keeping it together.

But I still got this one:)


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
